“A different opinion...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

I had a different impression from the other recent reviewers. Actually the service was perfect: friendly, helpful and attentive, so much so that I ordered a wine, didn't like it - although it was in perfect conditions - and they changed it without charging me. This NEVER happens no matter where you are and the fact they obliged is worth of mention. The food was OK, but nothing really special. The place is very nice. All in all, it is worth a very good, admittedly more for service, location and design that for food.

“Used to be my favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2011

I tried to write a review of this restaurant in October 2010 but TA rejected it saying you could not locate it. At any rate, in the past we always went for dinner and sat inside, a lovely room with impeccable service and food, reasonably priced.

But last week, on a sunny Saturday we sat outside for lunch, and what a mess. It was a half hour before any bread was brought to the table, though we requested it several times, and another hour before we got any part of our food. Unacceptable! The service was confused, i.e. we requested forks several times before the waiters remembered to bring them. The owner was barking orders at his staff, very unpleasant. There was a party of about 25 guests going so perhaps the restaurant couldn't handle the crowd. However i will recommend it since my fish dinner, with frutta del mare and vegetable sauce was delicious. Not so successful was the pasta ragu and some of the other dishes we ordered, but the risotto was also good. We will try again next time and hope it was an off day.
